Discrimination is a real bitch, isn't it?

    You know, there are people who can justifiably throw out the discrimination card ... but this chick needs to have her ass kicked.

    A young store manager is blaming excessive security at Calgary's largest mall for causing her to lose her job following a public tiff last week.

    Last Friday around 3:30 p.m., Stephanie Gick, 22, and her co-worker boyfriend Justin Andruszkiewicz took a work-related disagreement at Kernels in Chinook Centre mall outside to the parking lot.

    When Andruszkiewicz began yelling, mall security showed up and issued a six-month ban to each, effectively ending their employment at Kernels.

    "I honestly question if it was because of my physical appearance," she said.

    "Would (they) have done that if it was a blond woman and her daughter, or is it because I have pink hair and tattoos?"

    You shouldn't date a co-worker at a popcorn store. Eventually, the guy is going to try the ol' popcorn box trick.

    I was <i>this close</i> to spraying Vault Zero on the screen over that. :)

    They still have popcorn stores? That's so 80's.

    Also, if I thought Pink was entering the mall, I'd ban her on general principle.

    Does her boyfriend (or ex?) have pink hair and tattoos as well?

    Was mall security driving one of those little three-wheel carts with the yellow light on top? Very, very intimidating.

    How do they kick you out of the mall for six months anyway? Do they staple one of those security tags onto your T-shirt so if you try to go into a store the alarm goes off?

    No, but it's the $5.99 shades that scare the people.
